Ratings for Dr. Fatima H. Hakkak
She routinely cancels and changes appointments, with little to no warning. I literally had five different cancellations from her, in a five week period, all with no notice from the doctor or her office. I had to call the office myself to verify my appointments, which is when I would find out that the appointment had already been cancelled or was going to be cancelled. Despite having an existing diagnosis for my condition, she re-diagnosed me before even scheduling any tests or getting the tests and notes from the previous doctor. She was not helpful and doesn't seem to care about her patients at all.
My review is mixed. Pros- Takes time for you, schedules tons of tests to disgnose your issue. Explains things, gives you info to take home and read. Asks a lot of questions. Caring deep down inside. Good sense of humor. If u trust western medicine, she is the doctor for you. Cons- never know what mood she is going to be in. (Funny-wacky, serious-stressed, or cocky-know it all.) Another patient commented that she was scarry with her moodiness. Does not listen well, assumes she knows how you feel and takes it as fact. Doesnt ask about diet, failure to keep record of food allergies/sensitivities after providing 3 times. Recommended junk foods as way to raise blood pressure, no understanding for my sensitive body/issues. Complains about things that are part of her job which added to my stress. She gives drugs way too much power and credit. I felt overmedicated, turned into a miserable zombie. Looking for a naturopath. Stresed out just thinking about this.
Dr. Hakkak is an amazing doctor and her staff is very friendly and welcoming. I had been to 2 other cardiologists and I'm so thankful that I found Dr. Hakkak. Dr. Hakkak is always willing to answer my list of questions and take time with me. She is straightforward and honest while at the same time being caring and takes a true personal interest in me. Like any dr.'s office - there can be a wait sometimes - but emergencies happen - and I come prepared with a book or watch the tv in the lobby. I highly recommend her!
Dr. Hakkak is a very friendly doctor. The first time I went in to see her I was very nervous and she had talked to me and made me comfortable and I was very glad that she was my doctor. I had a mild heart attack and she made me feel better with her knowledge and she had answered all of the questions I had. I have been seeing her for a few months now and her staff that works with her is very helpful and friendly. I like talking to her very friendly person and honest. I would recommend her as your Doctor Thank you, Jesse T.
